About Kathleen Curran

The cottage is within walking distance of the village, but is still very private and off the main road. I live a few miles away. My phone no is 00 353 879089628

Kathleen Curran purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Kathleen Curran chose Waterville

It is very comfy, near village and beach. You can go for an evening stroll on the prom, pop in for a drink in one of the local bars and no worries about driving home.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has a lovely sunny aspect....wonderful evening sunshine. It has a private tennis court and is very safe for children . Great base for hill walking and taking in the Kerry Way

Wonderful place to have a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are just returning home after two weeks in this property. We've had a truly relaxing happy time, the owner kind and thoughtful. Just what me my adult children and two dogs needed.

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Waterville was a wonderful place to stay and Kathleen's college was incredibly comfortable with very convenient access to the entire, cozy little town of Waterville. We had a wonderful time there for 4 days, and Kathleen is the best host you could ask for. We had every amenity available to us that we needed, and what's more, when we left our passports at the cottage and didn't realize it until we had arrived in Shannon the night before we needed to catch our flight, she drove halfway to meet us to return them and helped us to get a little sleep before our flight left. She absolutely saved us, and had the best hiking recommendations around - you will not be disappointed if you stay here. The hospitality alone is worth 5 stars!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two children spent a marvelous week in June in this lovely cottage. As we were coming from the busy city life - this was like a breath of fresh air- perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

The house was well equipped, clean and well maintained, located just a 5 minute walk from the village which was ideal. Kathleen was very helpful and gave us loads of ideas of places to visit and things to do. We went on a walk/hike she suggested on one day which was truly spectacular and definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

The whole area is filled with different activities and amazing sights. We went to Valentia and a nearby fishing village of Portmagee. We also spent an evening at the chocolate factory at St Finians bay- which certainly satisfied our sweet tooth! The Fishermans Bar was really nice with decent food and nice music on Wednesday nights. The local grocery shops had all the basics to stock our kitchen and everyone was so friendly. We even went to a gaelic football match on one day which was very exciting.

This really was a home away from home- will be back again.

Very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and never ran out of things to do. Lots of great walking in the area. Went to Valentia, visited the lighthouse cafe and the chocolate factory at St Finians Bay. The cottage is well situated for driving the Ring of Kerry and very convenient for Derrynane and Ballinskelligs wonderful sandy beaches.

The cottage was very clean and well maintained. It was comfortable and fully equipped with whatever we needed including dishwasher, washer, dryer, clothesline, iron, barbeque, cooktop, oven,

microwave, fridge, two bathrooms(one ensuite), 2 TV's, vcr, dvd player, Hi Fi system and a box of brochures of things to see and do.

Kathleen has thought of everything. At the end of the day we felt like we were "coming home".

We particularly enjoyed relaxing by the peat- burning fire in the sitting room, a smell I will forever associate with our stay in Ireland.

Lovely week

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a lovely peaceful break in Waterville.

I loved this cottage! It is very comfortable bright and welcoming and is within easy walking distance of village, pubs and good restaurants. We unfortunately didnt get the best of weather but we did not let that spoil our hols. We chilled out , parked the car for the week, turned off the laptop and relaxed. Thank you Kathleen for your wonderful hospitality and especially for the turf and the firewood. We drank our fair share of red wine in front of that open fire. A great stay in a fabulous region !
